The FDA has announced another recall of hand sanitizers, this time focusing on sanitizers that were mixed and imported from Mexico. According to CBSNews.com, "More than half of hand sanitizers imported from Mexico contain dangerous levels of toxic ingredients and should not be used by consumers". The FDA recommends that customers discard the potentially toxic imported sanitizers immediately.
What brands of hand sanitizer have been recalled?
Does Culinary Solvent supply ethanol to any hand sanitizer brands that have been recalled?
No. Culinary Solvent is not connected to any hand sanitizer recalls. Because we only make and sell one thing (pure, non-denatured ethyl alcohol), customers can have the utmost confidence that their pure food grade ethanol is the safest alcohol for human consumption or human application (ie topical rub of sanitizer on the skin).
